IT has been alleged that a young woman was dragged down a dark alley and assaulted by four men after a night out in town.

The 22-year-old, who had been out with friends, was walking alone to the taxi rank at the bottom of Market Hill where the assault happened at 2am last Saturday.

The victim's friend, who did not wish to be named, said: "She's completely shook up. She's so tiny she wouldn't have been able to do anything. For four men to do that to her is disgusting.

"People need to know about it so it doesn't happen to anyone else."

The street, which connects Eldon Street and May Day Green, was cordoned off on the Monday after the attack with a police guard on either side as forensic examinations were carried out.

Police are investigating the assault and said specialist officers are providing support to the victim, who was not seriously injured.

A spokesman said the motive for the attack was unclear.

Anyone who may have been in the area at the time or may have witnessed anything should call 101 with incident number 136 of November 30.
